Skipping Strides

Last night we had a 6 mile recovery run with 6x100m strides attached. I have been having this nagging pain in my ab area so decided to skip the strides part to try and give it more time to heal without sprinting up a storm on some strides.

Monday night my dad flew in from the Dominican Republic. The son of close friends of our family has been sick and things got very bad over the weekend so he grabbed an emergency flight to come up and help. We spent much of the day yesterday in the hospital and hanging out at their house helping out where we could.

Another reason I skipped the strides is because there were people that I wanted to be near and I wanted to get back as soon as possible to their house. Like I say often...life happens sometimes.

It makes me very sad. I don't know what else to say right now. A long last couple of days.

Today we have a 12 mile run on the schedule....man these midweek long runs are getting loooong!

Oh. And I finished Harry Potter on Monday. Best book of the 7 I think.

Dude, you read the entire HP book already?? Are you like the speed reader from the Great Space Coaster?

I'm very sorry to hear about your family friend, my thoughts are with you and his family.

Great job with the 6 mile recovery. I hope that ab pain you've been having goes away soon!
